Hospital is the result of an information technology research project, based on the utilization of a web based application for managing the hospital drugs dispensing. Part of wHospital back bone and its key distinguishing characteristic is the adoption of the digital signature system, initially deployed by the Government of Lombardia, a Northern Italy Region, throughout the distribution of smart cards to all the healthcare and hospital staffs. The developed system is a web-based application with a proposed Health Records Digital Signature (HReDS) handshake to comply with the national law and with the Joint Commission International Standards. The prototype application, for a single hospital Operative Unit (OU), has focused on data and process management, related to drug therapy. Following a multifaceted selection process, the Infective Disease OU of the Hospital in Busto Arsizio, Lombardia, was chosen for the development and prototype implementation. The project lead time, from user requirement analysis to training and deployment was approximately 8 months. This paper highlights the applied project methodology, the system architecture, and the achieved preliminary results.
